And again sir, I have personally witnessed a bone stock E46 M3 pit out with the oil guage at 287 degrees. It didn't go limp, but it got the oil to that temp, and the owner pulled out to save his vehicle. Just because the other the S54 bimmers don't have a limp mode, doesn't mean they don't get dangerously hot.
